On Writing: What’s Essential?

I found this Twitter thread that’s so valuable that I have to park it here before it disappears into the depths of my newsfeed:

Click on the tweet and read the whole thread. It was what I needed to hear after five months of agonizing over plot and story and everything else.

Hope your day is filled with lots of stories worth telling and writing about. As for me, it’s the kid’s first day of summer vacation and we’re staying home so far. I’m still nursing a cold and so outdoors stuff will have to wait until tomorrow.

  1. Feel better soon. I like the advice contained here for writers. Why should you follow someone else’s rules. Write your own story and if you’re good you will have an audience. Some of my favourite authors don’t seem to follow rules at all. Perhaps that’s why they are my favourites…

    1. Thanks, Michael! This darn cough is taking awhile to leave me though but it doesn’t help that I keep forgetting to take my antibiotics on schedule lol

      I found this tweet courtesy of Neil Gaiman whose style I love. He just tells the stories he wants to tell without following any rules.
